New Reservoir to alleviate water challenges in the north

The R43 million Mona Reservoir was handed over to the community by eThekwini Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda and will alleviate water challenges in oThongathi and surrounding areas.

ETHEKWINI Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda handed over the R43 million newly constructed Mona Reservoir to the community on 3 December. The reservoir will increase water supply to Mona, oThongathi and surrounding areas in Wards 61 and 62.

The reservoir has a storage capacity of five megalitres. Mayor Kaunda said this was part of the City’s ongoing efforts to upgrade water infrastructure. “In the current financial year, the City has allocated R2.1 billion to upgrade water and sanitation infrastructure,” said Mayor Kaunda. He also introduced the contractor for the Motala Farm Housing project in the area, which will yield 2 200 housing units. Bulk infrastructure is currently being placed on site.
